OK, so I know that you are not supposed to laugh at your children, but look, they are the funniest things next to Bill Cosby you will ever have living directly in your home, imitating your every move, blurting out your private conversations, and making your face do things you never thought possible. Starting with their births, I found that with my children, I actually WAS able to pull my bottom lip over the top of my head and not feel a thing! I think it was preparation for all of us; we can live through anything else they could pull during their eighteen years with us, and possibly more, for those who might have the ‘failure to launch’ syndrome.
Have you ever been on a journey and had absolutely nothing to do but stare at the trees or listen to music that made absolutely no sense due to repetition? The drama of kids never stop! Even though they may do or say things that would cause you to contemplate snatching a hole in their butts, you stand composed as you figure out ways to make their lives miserable instead. Don’t worry, they have plans of their own. I never counted gray hair until my children were born, and now instead of dyeing my hair, I have found that it feels better, and is quite therapeutic, to just yank them out one at a time. I knew they would be back by the end of the week anyway.
I adore my children! There is not a day that passes when I don’t walk away from them, shaking my head because of something cute they have said to me. On this blog is where I share with you how laughter is a good thing! So, during your busy day, week or month, take the time to find the light in all of it. Laugh, people! It’s good for the soul!
